Not a minute of boredom
To fully enjoy this you have to accept the convention that the bad guys would successfully impersonate the American Embassy and kidnap again the professor, and also that the same bad guys would be so fools as not to tie up Dr. Brady while he is unconscious.
Once you do that, you are for a ride, as always with this series. Have fun.

The Invisible Man Falls In Love
I first downloaded the 512Kb MPEG4 file, but encountered a problem when I tried to play it. So, I downloaded the Cinepack file and it played beautifully. As far as the episode itself is concerned, we're talking solid British entertainment set in the midst of the Cold War. The Russians have captured one of their own beautiful lady scientists and taken her to the Soviet Embassy prior to deporting her back to the Soviet Union. Her crime? She dared to speak in favor of freedom for scientists in a lecture she was giving in London about her research into the field of Invisibility. Naturally, the Invisible Man was interested in her research because of his desire to find an antidote for his condition. He follows the scientist and her captors to the Soviet Embassy, introduces himself to Tania (as she is known in the episode) and then proceeds to contact his own handlers in the British Government to secure her release. The episode continues with kidnappings (twice), a chase through the London countryside, and a satisfying conclusion when the Invisible Man finally arranges for Tania to be flown to America to continue her research. In this episode, we can see the beginning of a love interest between the Invisible Man and the beautiful Tania.
